Aww, that's pretty sweet.
Only thing I can think of is Feel the Wear app. It let's you assign custom vibration and sound patterns for notifications, so you could make a custom one for your SO.
Hadn't heard of it until now. Just had a read up on it and it sounds interesting, going to give it a try. Link for others' convenience;
Play Store: Feel The Wear
Edit: I'm so impressed with this app I've already gone premium. It's always bugged me that my watch has a speaker that's so seldom used. Now I can set custom notification sounds and vibrate patterns for each app, and even hook into Tasker profiles. Definitely my #1 find for Wear.
You have to download an app called Feel The Wear, It will let you put in audible tones for all kinds of notifications, The free version won't let you put in custom tones, only the premium version.
Finally, somebody that gets me! I can't imagine why anybody would also want to silence their watch? That defeats the whole point of having one!
From what I hear, phone and watch notification modes are going to be separated in Android Wear 2.0 which should be out soon.
In the mean time the Android Wear app does have a "Mute connected phone" setting. I don't love this because sometimes I DO want my phone to have audible notifications.
The solution for me has been to install an app called Feel the Wear which can make the watch Vibrate even though the phone is in silent mode.
Beware that Timers and Alarms set on the watch won't vibrate when in silent mode either! So stupid. Almost got me a parking ticket the other day. Note that even Feel The Wear cannot solve this problem :(
I'm just in the middle of installing CM13 on my phone right now, so I'll see how it interacts with Android Wear.
I use "Feel the Wear". You can use it to increase the number of vibrations per notification type as well.... ... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
... ... ...
Edit: That is to let you know your phone is not connected by vibrating your watch. I think you want the other way around.
Feel the Wear solves this for you. You can use your own notification sounds, and set which apps you want sound notifications for. Has TTS for notifications too, although I haven't tested that.
Android Wear doesn't have notification sounds. You can use Feel the Wear to add notification sound to an app if you want to.
If you charge it at a regular time then you can useFeel the Wear to create a silent profile where it does not disturb you.
So there is an app called Feel The Wear. I use it to lengthen the vibration time (I used to miss them often). It has the option to silence the notifications if your phone screen is on. I've never tried this feature but the app is awesome.
I think Feel The Wear: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear is the one everyone recommends.
Going from the Zenwatch to the Moto v2, the Moto v2 is actually pretty strong.
Feel the Wear. I've used this for a while. Hasn't been updated in years. I've paid for the premium version and it works extremely well.
Also allows for custom notifications and some other stuff I don't use.
It's not possible with WearOs, but you can use this app;
I don't think you can change the vibration strength. But you can use an app to modify the vibration pattern (long , short, multiple vibrations) per application (sending the notification) by using Feel the Wear https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear&hl=en_US I run it on my watches for this purpose and to use it's blue tooth disconnect notification feature (so I don't forget my phone somewhere). Take a look, it has a free and a premium (pay) level of functionality.
For adding sound to notifications and vibrations the best and easiest way to do it is to use the wear os app called:
"feel the wear" which is available at the play store at this link:
I use 'Feel the Wear' on my TWP. In the settings it has an option for the watch obeying the phones DND rules...works for me on WearOS 2.3.
I think you can also set it for the other way around i.e the phone obeying the watch but I believe that option is still experimental.
Edit...Unsure whether it works for pie though
I have it installed but haven't used it yet but look up Feel the Wear. It let's you make your own vibration patterns for each app etc.
You can do that with this app:
yea that would be a dealbreaker for sure, but I've had a very positive experience with the vibration, in fact I feel like it's stronger than my urbane, or maybe I got used to it.
if I had any issues tho, I would install this app to create custom vibrations patterns which are much harder to miss (makes the vibration pulse longer, etc.) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear&hl=en
Try feel the wear for changing the vibration strength. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
There are certain apps that allow you to use a built in keyboard but you have to install. I won't link any as I've personally not used one in a long time, really didn't like trying to type on the tiny ass screen. But just search for them on the play store
I'm not sure what your asking but if your concern is that you won't feel the vibration then Feel the Wear is a great app that lets you customize vibrations for your watch.
Notification sounds aren't a default of Android Wear.
To get sounds, you'll want to install Feel The Wear. You'll need to ensure that your Alarm volume on the watch is turned up (it's usually silent by default, for some unknown reason), and I've also found that you need to assign both a sound, AND a vibration pattern in FTW to get the notification sound.
I love mine. Went from my Pebble Time Round to it.
On a Nexus 6P, 7.1.1 and it works perfectly. Battery life is great. Overnight not charging (but still connected), it only drains about 7%. During the work day with texts and emails (maybe about 50-60 notifications), it only goes down by 15-20%.
Of course not always-on display, but tilt-to-wake and brightness set to 3. For what it's worth, also using Feel The Wear for a lot of custom vibration patterns based on person/app in notification.
WhatsApp is giving only one vibration be default. To distinguish between apps you can try my app Feel The Wear where you can set custom patterns for every app that shows a notification.
Feel the Wear app has a setting for this:
The setting is called PHONE SCREEN ON BEHAVIOR and you can make it silent so the watch will not vibrate.
Feel the Wear lets you set vibration patterns by app (including no vibration at all). There's an in-app purchase for additional functionality (which I'm very happy I paid for), but the free version will do what you need.
I get them on wifi, not sure what you're doing wrong. If you want to change your vibrations, download the Feel the Wear App:
I have mine set to TWO LONG for all my apps.
The app Feel the Wear has a setting to do this:
I think it's a paid feature but the options are:
Custom behavior when phone's screen is on:
Custom behavior when watch's screen is on:
There is an app called Feel The Wear that allows you to set notifications to repeat until they are cleared. As far as what wearables have strong vibration, I have found that question is unfortunately very subjective. I've seen people who say their Fossil Gen 5 vibrates too strongly yet I find my Gen 5 vibration to be extremely weak compared to my old Motorola 360.
There is an app for this called Feel The Wear.
Lots of reports of it being broken with an update but it seems to still be working fine on my Fossil Gen 5. Not sure if there are other alternatives.
feel the wear
it exist, but is not supported by the dev since 2017 and is not compatible to wear os 3
I recommend "Feel The Wear" Android app, you can configure the vibration pattern for each application, so you can make it vibrate a pattern that will wake you up.
Try the app Feel the Wear. It lets you control vibration (even vibration pattern) on an app-by-app basis.
Another option is to block standard Wear OS notifications for apps you don't want vibrations from and use an alternative notification system (such as the app Notification icons) for them.
Update: "Feel the wear" app, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
Perfect and cheaper than StayLit, plus some other feature =)
There is an app called Feel The Wear that does allow you to set custom vibrations and sounds for your notifications. You have to install it on the watch & the phone. It's still not perfect but it's definitely better than the limited customizations in Wear OS.
Maybe look at Feel the Wear app, it can control notification vibrations. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear&hl=en_US
If the notifications show on your phone you can use an alternative notification system such as feel the wear or notification icons watch face which route notifications from the phone to the watch directly, instead of the half baked system Google created.
You can use the Feel the Wear app to stop vibrations for notifications from certain apps. Not sure if it prevents the screen from waking though.
Feel the Wear app
Feel the Wear should work for you. Lots of customization settings for you to set up your vibration settings as you want.
I use the application Feel the wear Normally I use it since I put my phone on DND mode when it is connected to the watch and the watch gets into DND mode automatically too. This app pushes the vibrations regardless of the mode. So it works on theater mode too.
However note that it says on the description "App is not fully optimized for incoming phone calls". I didn't have any issues though.
There is an app called Feel the Wear that allows you to change the watch face screen timeout. I find even with the screen timeout set to 30 seconds I still make it through the day.
You can even set it to infinite, although it'd probably drain your battery in under 8 hours and seems to still shut off after an hour or so.
you can get Feel the Wear which allows you to customize your notifications. When I get a text it buzzes 3 times and repeats every minute.
Just noticed your note about using an iphone, sorry idk for iphone.
I use this app and when I put my phone in mute, my watch still gets the notifications and vibrates. If you pay $2.25, this app also can add sound notifications on your watch.
Here are instructions how to make the vibrations stronger. If you dont feel comfortable doing adb stuff you can also change the patter and make the vibrations longer with Feel The Wear app.
I found a solution.
Install the True Silent Mode Xposed module
Install Feel The Wear
Set phone to true silent
Disable vibrations in individual apps (in my case, Textra)
Set up vibrations in FTW.
If outdoor legibility is key to you, your only option right now is the Sony Smartwatch 3
Missed notifications as well as disconnects generally shouldn't happen
Regarding vibrations, you could try out https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
I would recommend you to try again, this time with the Sony Smartwatch 3, mainly because afaik there is no outdoor-readable AW watch coming up
There are certain apps on the Play Store that can customize vibration. This may help (I can't be sure, though. I don't use this app actively)
As for apps I would recommend:
List made using List My Apps
As for settings I would turn of wrist gestures as that seen to save a fair bit of battery along with lowering the screen brightness.
Edit: Turning of tilt to wake (from the android wear app, in the clock specific settings) is probably the big thing for battery rather then wrist gestures but did them both myself.
Can share some more stuff later but Xmas family-time is upon me.
There's an app that does this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear&hl=en&rdid=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
Nothing ever seems to work perfectly on Android, or is just half-assed. An incomplete list:
Thank goodness for the customizability of this OS, or I'd just get a flip phone and do everything on my laptop (I'm still tempted). I can't imagine being on something restricted like iOS and being forced to deal with shit like this.
And now, some raves:
Feel the wear might be what you're looking for.
Use Feel the Wear to make audible notifications. Otherwise it's impossible.
Try Feel The Wear
And no noise because no speaker. But it is the most hardy of the Wears out there.
I use Feel the Wear lets you set custom vibrations to any notification.
This might help, let's you customize your vibration patterns
I agree with you on the vibrator. Fortunately, Feel the Wear works for me - I set it for triple-short-vibe (and only for notifications I care about) and I'm now feeling it.
In direct sunlight, I find the watch readable on high/5/whatever-its-called. Again, an app helps me out here - Display Brightness will change the brightness depending on my current activity; its a bit of an odd approach, but it works reasonably well for me.
Gotta give credit to:
/u/johnbruin for recommending Feel the Wear in this thread.
/u/velazcod for creating Display Brightness for Wear (see this thread)
Apart from everyone else's suggestions on this thread, i recommend you try the app "feel the wear" .
I own a Fossil sport, the notification vibration default was too long for me, rather a little too distracting.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear&hl=en . i purchased the pro version (its dirt cheap) then you can even make your own vibration pattern. I've made my vibration pattern two very short vibrations, vibrations feels a lot tighter and very less intrusive now.
Edit: And i use A/D Watchface , its Free neat and tidy minimal watchface . give it a try.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear this app lets any watch do that.
But you can use this app : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
Maybe Feel The Wear can do the job.
You need this app called Feel the Wear
It is for this exact situation.
Easy solution bud, you need the Feel The Wear app
Feel The Wear for custom vibrations and watch sound notifications:
Facer, Watchmaker, and I also like Intellicom:
I prefer Weather Timeline for my weather app:
feel the wear solves this.
Feel The Wear could be what you are looking for
There is an app for that. Feel the Wear
I found "Feel The Wear", I think it's pretty much the same thing
You can still sideload the app to your watch, and install on your phone.
For your phone: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
Then sideload this to your watch: https://m.apkpure.com/feel-the-wear-notifications/sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear/download?from=details
Feel the Wear is doing that.
Use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
at a guess with a quick search:
Good one. Feel The Wear can also do this, plus other really neat features.
This isn't possible within the WearOs settings, but you can use this app;
you could also try this app to customise it it has lots of options
I haven't found a way to fix that. The only way seems to be Feel The Wear.
I have TWP too. Try Feel The Wear. It's great app
Try feal the wear
Feelthewear app has this option under settings tab
Does it vibrate using feelthewear app on phone https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
With the Feel the Wear app you can set quiet hours, where the watch will not make a sound.
My G Watch R doesn't have a speaker but is this what you're looking for?
Feel the Wear can be useful for this.
I use Feel The Wear from the Play Store you can manage all of your watch notifications straight from that.
Feel the wear also has a setting for that? "Lost my phone" function or something like that
Try an app called Feel The Wear from the Playstore. That may help you out. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
> notify me when I leave the phone behind
Feel the Wear has a setting to vibrate on disconnect.
For the vibration, this does the same I believe.
There's no need for an app, but Feel The Wear does this without the need for new watchfaces.
It is premium however, but it is worth it since there are many more features other than reminding every 10 minutes that's worth taking a look.
Try Feel the wear and see if it fixes it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
There's an app for that. Feel the Wear
I use feel the wear to lengthen certain apps. Its free! :)
I installed the app Feel The Wear to get around this. Allows you to set per-app vibration patterns and stuff and it ignores DND mode. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.martinflorek.wear.feelthewear
Well you can just install feel the wear from the play store and make the vibrations longer or more of them, so that should help right?
EDIT:Sorry, I thought this was linking to "feel the wear" app. I have not tried the "Wear Custom Vibrations" app.
Feel the Wear
Feel the Wear App has presets for the free version of the app (one short, two short, three short, one long, two long, three long) but if you pay for the upgrade you get a highly customizable menu to make the vibration patterns anything you want.
You have to pay $1 or $2 (I forget) to get the custom vibration setting. To make the custom vibrations, it gives you a square and you just tap or tap and hold different patterns that you want.
I love the custom vibrations from "feel the wear" app. Everyone should pay the extra to have them. The way you set them is so easy that anyone can set them. I highly recommend paying the upgrade.
